Katie Archibald and Daniel Bigham double up on day two of National Track Championships

Ten champions crowned on marathon day of racing in the Manchester velodrome on day two of the British Track National Championships

Olympian Katie Archibald, amateur Daniel Bigham and para-cyclist Lauren Booth all claimed a second national title on the second day of competition at the British National Track Championships.

Archibald (WNT) took her second championship title of the meet with victory in what she said was a “savage” scratch race. Archibald gained a lap along with team-mate Emily Kay and fellow Olympic gold medalist Eleanor Barker with 10 laps to go.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
